6:32 am
said the safe community was a strong voice in the meetering process. because church services often start in the morning, the mta decided to limit when they will start charging. >> all of the meters won't start enforcing until noon and that will last until 6:00 and all the meters have a four hour time limit. no citations are issued for the next three sundays. instead enforcement officers will issue warnings. this is a program that will expected to bring in about $2 million a year, but the mta said it was all started because of complaints that some drivers take up some spaces all day long. >> so this is something that is really meant to ensure that parking is available for people who come into san francisco. this will make it easier for visitors to come into san francisco and find a parking space. >> up until now there's only been a handful of parking enforcement officers assigned to sunday duty and they usually only deal with parking complaints. but because of sunday metered parking now, they said they will likely have to assign more officers.

6:34 am

6:46 am
are all about the labels. >> winter in the napa valley, baron vines surround bid a blaze of lingering autumn glory. a time of year when they are the only segment of the wine industry allowed to be resting. these guys sure aren't. >> do you smell that? >> this is what happens after the harvest comes in. debate begins about what to do with it. >> i don't know what these are. >> for winemakers brandon and bo, there's a future blend somewhere inside of hundreds of thousands of sample bottles. >> we have a general idea what we want it to taste like and what the components to be. >> fruit forward, this their creative process for a wine they intend to call love hammer. >> who are you appealing to with love hammer. >> hopefully old women. >> the boys from slow down wines have one hit on their resume
6:47 am

[laughter] >> hence, this meeting two floors above downtown saint helena with dave finney. you might not know his name. you would know his swift wines and labels. they are world renown. >> what does a label really need to say? >> pick me up. >> any wine on any shelf in any store is an exercise in darwinism. look at those names. you think actors have a hard time getting noticed? the label. >> what about the label? >> that's the name of the wine.
6:48 am
>> the unique label of sexual chocolate is one of the reasons he agreed to work with them. >> this bottle came from a bootlegging operation we had in college. we had grapes from all over california and we recommended it be drank immediately and be shared with girls. >> when you want more, just call us, bo and brandon, made in the usa. labeling has become so important that even before the guys finalized the taste, they are trying out marketing concepts. what you see outside a bottle may or may not reflect it's contents. >> what are you selling with mannequins? >> chardonnay? >> yet none of this marketing wisdom about will be worth a dime if after the label sells a wine that taste doesn't bring customers back. >> you don't want to sell one bottle, you want to sell cases of wine. >> which for brandon and bo, it means back to the bins, back to trial and error, back to the labs, building a wine that will live up to the love hammer name. [laughter] >> you missed!
6:49 am
>> gunshots, gunshots, sorry! sorry. >> it's all right, as long as >>. >> here we see a few sprinkles moved through. we were going to show you a shot of tahoe, but we lost it, i'm sorry. we were getting some snow showers earlier this morning reported in truckee, and also south lake tahoe. so you will need your chains right now on interstate 8 to and highway 50 if you are headed there. snow showers expected through the morning. we you take you out of live doppler 7hd and show you where the rain is falling around the bay area.
